TEAM STRONG GIRLS Biweekly Progress – Carey H.

Weight Training 4x/week with 3 short HIIT sessions/week, plenty of food flexibility (and carbs), and enjoying the Christmas Holidays with family and loved ones resulting in 46 lbs (!!!) lost to date. Wowzers. Even better, this STRONG MOMMY from Australia has shredded an insane 14 inches around her belly button and 9 inches off of her hips…and she’s still going strong with a healthy, flexible, and sensible (and SANE) approach to Dieting. So proud of you Carey! I can’t wait to show off more of her progress! #MondayMorningMotivation

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Biweekly Progress – Lise G.

Lise G. continues to tighten up and even astonishes herself as the weeks go by! This STRONG GIRL is down 26 lbs and has also shredded 7 inches around her waist, 6 inches around her hips, and 8 inches off of her thighs following a sane approach to dieting that consisted of plenty of carbs and meals of her choice through the duration of her program…and very limited cardio. The best part of this awesome progress is…she’s still continuing to lean out even more. Lise says, “Hi Jenny, my abs are starting to come out and all of my Skinny Pants are starting to fall off…” Love it. No tricks. No short cuts. Lots of food. Lots of fun and a hot, tight body to boot that is just about ready for her photo shoot. I can’t wait to share this gorgeous STRONG GIRL’S story 🙂

When it comes to dieting and fat loss, everyone seems to always want to rush the process along. In baseball terms, everyone is always trying to hit a home run during the first couple of weeks and it’s being stuck in this mindset where everyone invariably fails. Fat loss is a biological process that begins with giving the body less calories than it needs to maintain body weight. To me, a great strategy to achieve this is structuring and calculating food to meet these goals, adding weight training exercises for the purpose of maintaining lean muscle, and adding some cardiovascular work to create a bigger caloric imbalance. By adhering to these protocols, the body will utilize existing fat stores to fuel day-to-day activities (because calorie intake is lowered) resulting in progressively less body fat over time. Most importantly, the strategy and approach has to be realistic enough …
